If you have landed on this page then chances are very high you are looking for the best CBD oil in India or wondering from where can you buy the best CBD oil in India. Worldwide, CBD oil is getting positive reviews due to the many benefits it offers to its users. However, the commercial CBD market in India is quite new and young which is why it is important to understand the many forms of CBD and how many types of CBD are available and most importantly whether CBD consumption is legal in India or not.

Does CBD oil come in different forms as well?

With time, CBD oil has really become a generic term to describe CBD extracts in general. While CBD oil is the most common form of consuming CBD, there are other forms of CBD available in the market that are worth knowing about.

CBD Softgels: They are small gelatin capsules that are filled with concentrated CBD. Most of the CBD Softgel in India comes in the form of full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or isolate which you will know in brief down below. At Hempstrol, we use full-spectrum CBD Softgel in India, it contains no more than 0.3% of THC. Moreover, the gelatin that our CBD Softgel India capsules are made of plant-based while most of the companies out there choose animal products to make the covering of their capsules. Thus, this way our vegan consumers can also take our soft gel from our extensive CBD products India.

CBD Relief balm: It is a topical balm that can be applied to almost any area of the body to get relief from several problems like pain, soreness, joint ache. Being light in texture, it absorbs into the skin instantly and works remarkably well in bringing down the inflammation and thereby reducing arthritic pain.

CBD oil drops and Tinctures: They are liquid extracts that are consumed orally by directly placing them under the tongue. Like hemp seed oil, CBD oil drops have an oil base while tinctures have an alcohol base. 

And the most important question, is it legal to use/consume CBD in India?

As of today, CBD products with low THC content are legal for generic consumption. It should be noted that no law in India prohibits full-spectrum cannabis leaf oil and licensed sale of cannabinoids is permitted in India once it is approved by CDSCO under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act and NDPS act.  The NDPS Act (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic substances Act, 1985) outlaws the recreational use of cannabis. In laymen’s terms, the act doesn’t apply to the leaves and seeds of cannabis plants then technically it is not illegal to consume CBD oil. Moreover, the CBD oil is manufactured under a license issued by the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940 can be legally used by individuals for medical purposes in India. It is important to note here that CBD oil in India contains permissible amounts of cannabinoid THCs that are legal and allowed in most countries all across the world. The reason CBD oil that is derived from Marijuana is not legal is that it contains THCs well beyond the permissible limits. As per the standards set by the FDA, CBD oil cannot contain more than 0.3% THC. Due to the THC level within the permissible limit, CBD oil sourced from Hemp has acquired its legal status in most parts of the globe.
